Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Tenders Recipe

Who doesn’t like a chicken tender, especially the very crispy kind? The best part of this recipe is they’re simply air fried, NOT cooked in oil.  Of course you can eat them plain, but don’t forget they can become a taco, a wrap, or even sliced to go into a salad or a sandwich.


  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 14 minutes
  • Yield: Approximately one pound


Air Fryers


  • 1/2 cup grainy mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • Kosher salt
  • 16 ounces chicken breast tenders


  1. Combine mustard & hot sauce, mix well and separate into 2 bowls.
  2. Season panko crumbs with salt in a shallow bowl. Using one bowl of the mustard/hot sauce mix, brush tenders being sure to coat all sides well. Dredge each tender in breadcrumbs and pat down crumbs to coat well. Arrange in an air fryer according to unit instructions & spray evenly with cooking spray.
  3. Set unit to bake at 360 degrees for 7 minutes, open basket, carefully flip tenders, spray again and bake for an additional 7 minutes .
  4. Serve with remaining sauce
